Jesus And Religion by Mark Driscoll Ministries published on 2016-05-09T04:24:30Z Jesus plus anything, even religion, ruins everything. Jesus is harsh with the religious people because they are wolves who close their eyes to the light, make rules for God, want praise for themselves, and defend their idols. Religious rules are all about the external—not the internal—and raise human preferences to the level of God’s laws. Religion doesn’t help people; rather, it binds and enslaves them. Religious people try to be holier than Jesus, but we’re saved by Jesus’ works, not our own.
